Hello Class of 1983,
TGIS (Thank God it’s summer)! Hard to believe how swiftly time continues to pass and that 30 years ago this past May, we all gathered on the football field of California Lutheran College’s Kingsmen Stadium with our family, friends, faculty and staff to celebrate our commencement ceremony! Well guess what? Our 30 year class reunion is scheduled for October 18 -20, 2013, Homecoming weekend. Like me, perhaps you have only been able to attend a few class reunions over the years due to careers and life in general. However, the occasions that I was able to attend have been a great time to reconnect. Although the campus has experienced some major growth and changes over the years, there are still spots throughout the campus that you can wander about and fondly recall memories of past college days.
Send me your suggestions/ideas for activities for that weekend and start making plans now to attend, network and reconnect. Update your information before July 31, and be entered into a drawing to win a 2 night stay at the Four Season’s Westlake Village over Homecoming weekend.
